Review: Boots No. 7 Limited Edition Palettes Stone & Canvas

Boots No. 7 has brought out two limited edition palettes for Autumn, in Stone & Canvas – two large, cardboard palettes that come with 4 complimentary shades and a soft pencil for £14.00 each. A few key things here: 1. I hate boxy cardboard packaging, without exception. 2. Boots No. 7 is hit or miss. 3. This palette is £14.00 but you’ll never actually pay that cos there’s always a 3 for 2 or a […]

A square mascara brush?! No. 7 Extravagant Mascara

When I saw this mascara brush I was excited…very excited…a square brush! Say it with me… I – AM – A – ROBOT. Boots No. 7′s new mascara launch for August the 12th is Extravagant Lashes Mascara (in Black, Black/Brown and Blut). The brush is interesting! This mascara promises a dramatic curling effect for up to 8 hours and volume. Voila!: Hmm the brush sure looks more exciting when its pink. The test! My eye […]

Review: Boots No. 7 Stay Perfect Compact Foundation in Almond

I love creamy compact foundations, although a good one is very hard to come by. I am a fan of Shiseido’s Hydro Power foundation but the smell…urgh. Purfume + Foundation = Fail I gave Boots No. 7′s Stay Perfect Foundation a go because its reasonably priced at £13.50: They Say: No7 Stay Perfect Foundation Compact contains our unique superior grade beautifying complex of soft focus pigments for ultimate coverage and translucency. Non-greasy and easy to […]

5 Bronzing Powders for people who don’t like Bronzers…

sonia-rykiel.jpg

My mission – to find natural(ish), skin enhancing, warmth inducing bronzers that are more tanned brown goddess than orange day glo. There are so many nasty tans out there. I am a tan-o-phobic. The smell of fake tan – that malty, mouldy, cardboardy smell is like the smell of a fart for me. There are good and bad of expensive and drugstore brands but what I personally hate in bronzers is anything: 1. Too orange. […]

Boots No.7 Tropical palettes

I am in love with Boots No. 7 Instant Radiance foundation. The foundation has nice medium coverage, smooth application (the brush does work) and the colour match is great! Love it! So I decided to indulge further in these extremely beautiful eye shadows from the tropical collection: Pretty, huh? Is it easy to use, being pressed into such an intricate pattern? Well… …no. The eyeshadow looks beautiful, but it is quite hard, quite scratchy. Trying […]

Boots Protect & Perfect ruins my Sunday

So THIS is why Sunday should be a day of rest – because boredom leads to spending and over eating. In case you have never heard of Boots Protect and Perfect, a documentary called Horizon examined beauty products and whether they worked or not. They tried out a lot of creams and one the mentioned (well didn’t actually mention as that would be advertising), was Protect and Perfect from Boots No.7 which is a £17 […]
